During a campaign stop in Sioux City, Iowa, a 17-year-old high school student decided to ask Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke to her prom.
"It’s OK if you say no, but will you go to prom with me?" Claire Campbell said Thursday, according to the Des Moines Register.
She also held a sign asking O’Rourke to attend her prom.
O’Rourke, who confessed he was moved by the teenager’s request, replied: “As someone who did not go to prom because no one asked me, I’m really touched. This means more to me than you know."
O’Rourke had his own suggestion the newspaper said.
"But somebody told me about your sign, so we came up with a counter-proposal," he said as he lifted up his own sign.
"Will you caucus for me?" he asked.
There is only one problem, however, Campbell is from South Dakota and can’t take part in the Iowa caucuses, the Register noted.
